REPS 4 will form part of the new Rural Development Programme for the period from 2007 to 2013. The draft Programme was sent to the European Commission in late December 2006. Since then, my officials have responded to a substantial number of queries and requests for clarification from their counterparts in the Commission services. I am hopeful that this process is coming to a conclusion and that approval for the new Scheme can be obtained within a reasonably short period.
